Holidays have been booked people have made plans, a week here, 2 weeks there, the world has opened back up, and people are eager to make the most of it. There are issues with the war in Ukraine and the rising costs of living for sure, plus recruitment is becoming more and more difficult. We in Kendlebell Naas do provide short-term call answering support. The benefits of our service are wide ranging, but put simply: whether little or large, big or small, Kendlebell Naas will answer the call. When with us you know that customers calls will be answered, by a professional team and will be dealt with accordingly.
If you are a one person operation who answers your calls when you are away? Are calls answered at all? If you are a larger business with a receptionist, who answers the phone when they are away? Does the answering of the phone take away from someone else’s “core” work? Are callers passed from Billy to Jack? This is where, we come in, we can answer your calls effectively for you.
When you start to plan systems, be that holiday or sick cover, or even dealing with a fractured office of the future, understand that with us every call will be answered. Our services are flexible. Plus it is in our clients power when they divert to us, so we only answer the calls when you want us to: sick cover, overflow, relief and as your primary call answering option. We are flexible.
One can never plan too early. An employee has a legal entitlement to 20 holiday days a year, see more here. Many people often seem to have no plan when it comes to cover. Our call answering service can be easily accessed. In the simplest terms, we provide you with a divert number, which you divert to as you need it.
Here are the three main benefits of using us for holiday cover:
- Calls are answered – as you directed by you.
- You will get alerts as you need them – as you directed by you.
- Company image is maintained during holiday period.
Calls are answered
Our dedicated team of Personal Assistants/Virtual Receptionists will answer your calls, as directed by you. No missed calls, no new enquiries dropped. Calls are answered in a friendly and professional manner. Generally our services cost 30% what a in-house receptionist would. Plus we don’t discriminate. We provide call answering services to the small and the big. If you are a sole traders or a multinational, we can answer your calls.
We will disseminate the call as directed by you. Usually by text or by email if you want instant notification. Although we could patch elsewhere either. Some customers just want the daily report which we send everyday at 6.00pm. We try to provide a service as customisable as possible. This means for some companies we simply relay the message the they will reopen on the XXth of XXXXX. Whereas others want as much detail as possible from the caller. Again as directed by you the customer.
We maintain your company image while you are away, our call answering service is professional and friendly. Plus for smaller businesses we really add scale. This added scale can be a real benefit, enhancing credibility. One area where sole traders seem to particularly get tripped up is their mobile phone. They list their mobile number on their website, when starting out. That might initially seem like a good idea, but long term it can make getting away from work hard to manage.
